New Mexico: House Bill 77 Re-Incarnated – Same Song, Second Verse: Committee Substitute Still Contains Obama-Style Ban/Regulation Of Private Gun Transfers

The proposed method in House Bill 77 has been changed, but the gun control advocates’ end-game remains the same: universal regulation of private firearms transfers.  The newly-released committee substitute for HB 77 would make it a crime for a private individual to transfer his or her legally-owned firearm without going through a federal firearm licensed dealer (FFL) to conduct a background check on the transferee.  Exceptions are made for only certain categories of individuals – family members, domestic partners, stepchildren, foster or adopted children, or persons who live in the same residence and maintain a single economic unit.  However, the provisions in HB 77 would still apply to gun sales, gifts, loans, rentals or trades between friends, neighbors, co-workers or more-distant relatives.  These restrictions would not apply to temporary transfers during hunting or target practice, but the possible breadth and scope of the legislation is endless.
